Unbiased, the site that connects millions to advice, is moving to transform the way people find accountants and solicitors. Already the UK’s first choice for finding financial and mortgage advisers, Unbiased is now deploying its market-leading technology in the legal and accountancy space.
People are most likely to seek advice when faced with life’s biggest decisions. Key moments may include buying a first home, starting a business, seeking a divorce, and planning for life post-retirement. It is also at such key moments that professional advice can make the most difference.
Unbiased is now pitching as the ‘go to’ destination for individuals facing life’s big decisions. At present the site offers the UK’s widest choice of financial advisers, with the most powerful search and connect tools for matching consumers with the ideal adviser for them, often within just a few hours. Having made such advice much more accessible and convenient, Unbiased is now extending this service to guide people to the best accountants and solicitors.
Over 2,000 accountants and solicitors are now listed on Unbiased, and 5,000 more are expected by the end of 2017, to create the largest financial and legal connection service in the UK. Unbiased is currently on a drive to encourage more professionals to list, with a special introductory offer. Until 31 May new subscribers can secure 3 months’ free listing and free enquiries on the premium plan (usual price £19+VAT per month subscription and £15+VAT per accepted enquiry).
Karen Barrett, founder and CEO of Unbiased, comments: “Today’s consumer wants to click and have it now – or as soon as possible. We expect that responsiveness when ordering taxis and takeaways, so why not when seeking a professional adviser? Life today moves at breakneck pace, people don’t have time to do lots of shopping around, and there’s a huge gap in the market for a service that can connect people quickly and easily with the right accountant or solicitor.
“At the same time, we are enabling solicitors and accountants to seize the advantages technology can offer. Our innovative tools help them to grow their businesses in the way that suits them, by attracting the kind of customers they prefer, at the pace they want. Just as importantly, we’re enabling these professionals to stay at the forefront of technology, benefitting from our ongoing innovations as we make them.”
